Writtle School of Design Technician Steve Jeyes has seen his logo for a charity campaign used around the world!
Steve entered a competition to find a logo for the 2013 Can’t Stop the Serenity campaign after seeing it advertised on their website. Having enjoyed running a successful local fundraising event for the 2012 campaign he thought he would join in and have a go at a design. He drew his inspiration from his love for the show and the great work that Can’t Stop the Serenity are doing, and created the logo using Adobe Photoshop CS6.
Steve, who lives in Chelmsford, supports students studying Landscape Architecture & Garden Design, Interior Architecture & Design and Art & Design courses at Writtle College.
He said: “It was fantastic to win this competition and to see that my logo has been used for a global charity campaign supporting Equality Now and numerous other great causes.”
The campaign was started in 2006 when an avid fan of television and film writer/director Joss Whedon decided to show his film Serenity on Joss’s birthday to raise money for one of the charities that his late mother was involved with, Equality Now. The fan shared this idea with the world and now people in around 50 cities across the globe sign up to organise similar events, ranging from simply screening the movie to parties.
This year’s season started in April in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) and Norfolk, Virginia (USA) and the final event is on 26 October in Salt Lake City, with the tally of donations so far being nearly $76k and more than $800k since 2006.
